Harness Lasting a lot longer

I usually go through a seat harness every year as the straps fray and the seams come apart in the caboose...

But foiling appears to be much less stressful on the harness...Ive been riding a new harness for two years and it still looks new...

Re: DIY Neo Strutless?

I ended up keeping struts on my neos after I got a cheap cloud and realized the way they handled (and strutless Neo handled) wasnt worth the drift benefit. I know a lot of folks are obsessed with these kites but for me a quick start off the water is important (for many reasons)....strutless kites do...

Re: Which Stab for the 720?

I finally rode the 720 with the 483 stab today. The wing can definitely go as slow as the 633 and 683 without stalling which is rather crazy.... Its also definitely has a little less roll stability, which is expected...but it felt twitchy (or more responsive?) and it seems to handle fast drops bette...

Which Stab for the 720?

Finally could afford to get my hands on a 720 and have yet to ride it.

I have a 483, 450 and 325 stab....which would be best for it?

Thanks

Re: Damage Waivers for Assisting Kiters

I did speak with an attorney about this waiver. He mentioned its plausible....but it would be more effective to get our group together and form a non-profit group, establish a contract that everyone agrees not to sue each other and then purchase insurance that protects members from others as well as...

Re: Damage Waivers for Assisting Kiters

What it comes down to is - what is negligence during a launch land. Who decides? Must two hands be on the kite? can the kite be laid down before applying weight? can sand be used? should the assistant refuse to flip it and hand it off the kiter at all times? Is an IKO instructor more vulnerable to g...

Re: Damage Waivers for Assisting Kiters

Been kiting for 10 years and Im an instructor....kiting tends to be a sport for the upwardly mobile (for the most part)....some of whom prefer immaculate expensive gear....some just happen to be less tolerant than others when an assist goes south and start pointing fingers (even when you are trying ...

Damage Waivers for Assisting Kiters

Certainly we all assume some risk when landing another kiter's kite, but what happens if things go south and they decide to go after you? Has anyone distributed waivers to their crew to protect themselves? (Probably wouldnt make you the most popular kiter on the beach soliciting your buds for a cont...
